Qualcuno ha un po' di esperienza con questo framework?

Implementa diversi standard OGC non da poco

Web Map Service (WMS)  	
Web-based creation of maps out of raster and vector datasets. The 
generated maps can be visualized by common web browsers.

Web Feature Service (WFS) 	
Web-based access to vector geo-data, that is delivered as GML 2.1.1 
conformant XML-documents to clients, which can the further process this 
data (for example in a desktop GIS).

Web Coverage Service (WCS) 	
Web-based access to raster geo-data, that can be delivered in several 
image formats (e.g. TIFF, GIF, JPEG,BMP, PNM) and can then further be 

Web Catalog Service (WCAS)
based on OGC Web Services Stateless Catalog Profile. 	
Web-based catalog service for administration and querying of metadata 
describing geo-data and geo-services. A catalog service allows retrieval 
of data and services based on spatial and textual search criteria.

Web Gazetteer Service (WFS-G) 	
Service allowing geo-referencing of geographic entities based on textual 
identifiers (e.g. place names)

Web Terrain Service (WTS) 	
Creation of views out of 3D-data like city models and digital elevation 
models. The generated views can be visualized by standard web browsers.

Web Coordinate Transformation Service (WCTS) 	
A WCTS allows the web-based transformation of geographic coordinates 
from one coordinate references system into another.

Putroppo non ho ancora avuto modo/tempo di provarlo (ricordo che sto 
"giocando" con il voto elettronico).
Sembra molto interessante (tra l'altro sono incuriosito da WTS).

... per la gioia di Paolo e' in java ...
